First 1/3-1/2 of this route is low 5th class trad, the gear recommendation for medium nuts would probably work, but I ended up being really happy that I had a yellow and an orange metolius TCU along to protect me up to the roof in addition to the purple 0.5 BD cam. That 0.5 BD cam came in handy after the 4 bolts. The footwork on this route was a real struggle for me. I took a beating on the lower arete for sure. Sep 26, 2016
